Student Senate

Student Senate and the college administration govern all student affairs jointly. The Student Senate is the official governing body and the voice for all students and consists of members who conduct elections, appoint student all-college committee members and advocate for student needs and concerns.

The college policy on Student Involvement in Decision Making outlines how the Student Senate plays a role in college governance.
